Sparkle and Shine Challenge #2 - Sketch

**This is my second post today!  If you are looking for my Papertrey Ink Moments Inked post, please scroll down or click here **

Hi there!  It's time for another Sparkle and Shine challenge!  We had a great turn out for our first challenge and we hope that you will continue to join in the fun!  This week's challenge is a sketch challenge!  You can see the sketch above.  This challenge is sponsored by the awesome folks at Winnie and Walter!

I've been on a watercoloring kick lately, so I used watercolors to divide my card front in half on an angle (I know it goes the opposite direction of the sketch, but it was too pretty to toss and start over, Haha!)  Then I ran my watercolored panel through my diecut machine with the largest frame from the Mama Elephant Peek a Frames diet set to give it some extra interest. I diecut Papertrey Ink's Tag Sale #7 from white cardstock and then stamped and colored the rainbow  and sentiment from the Paper Smooches Spectrum stamp set.  I stamped the clouds a second time and cut them out to pop up on foam tape.  I chose some rainbow polka dot paper from the Avery Elle Everyday Collection 6x6 paper pad for the top and bottom of the tag, then I added a button and some bakers twine to the top of the tag, and popped the tag up using some foam tape.  After I adhered the panel to the card base, I added a sprinkling of 4mm, 6mm and 8mm Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
